Intersection: To Feel Connected
Skills:Micro Documentary, Web Series
Peter Carpou, Art Program Manager for Larkin Street Youth, talks about the value of art and the impact it can have on a young person’s life. Larkin Street Youth works primarily with homeless and runaway youth and has been bringing youth to Intersection for the Arts programs for over 15 years in part to introduce young people to consciousness raising, but also to empower them to choose meaning in life. What kind of difference can art make? Sometimes, it lets you experience what it is “to feel connected”… Part of a series called Stories for the Intersection.
Intersection for the Arts is San Francisco’s oldest alternative non-profit art space.For nearly 50 years, Intersection for the Arts has activated space and time for people to come together to imagine new cultural experiments that aim to transform our world. In 2011 Intersection for the Arts moved to its new home at 5th and Mission, also known as 5M. To celebrate this move and help capture in video the kind of impact Intersection has in the community, we developed a video series called Stories from Intersection that would present an organizational story of what Intersection for the Arts is, as told by the people it impacts, and the values it is driven by, and also demonstrate in short vignette modular stories why art matters.
